Learning More About Forensic Odontology


This weekend I had the great pleasure of conducting a class called “From Body Farm to 9/11” at the Oak Ridge Institute for Continued Learning (ORICL) in Oak Ridge, TN. We had a fantastic turnout and made some wonderful new friends. A huge thank you to everyone who attended and the ORICL for putting this on! 

During the presentation we talked about the current techniques used in forensic dentistry, about the connection of forensic dentistry to the University of Tennessee Body Farm, and how we identified bodies after the 9/11 attacks. 

If this sounds interesting and you’re interested in learning more, there will be a similar presentation on September 13th here in Nashville regarding the advances in human identification. It’s for those who want to become familiar with both the introductory and advanced practical applications of forensic odontology and anthropology. It will be a fantastic presentation with other participants. I’m really looking forward to it!

Pictures from The Secret City Festival

This past weekend we had the pleasure of taking part in the “Secret City Festival” in Oak Ridge, TN! We did a book signing on Saturday - it’s always so much fun to meet new readers and see old friends. 

I was born and raised in Oak Ridge, TN so the Secret City Festival was a great way to connect with old and new friends. It’s a great festival that’s been around for 12 years and has entertainment, arts, fun things for the kids to do, and shares the incredible history Oak Ridge has. Eddie Money and Kix Brooks headlined concerts on Friday and Saturday night, which was great for us music lovers! 

It was a great weekend and we are so thankful for those of you who stopped by the booth to say hi and get your book signed! 

We are hard at work finishing the new book and getting everything in place for that release. Can’t WAIT to share this with you! Thank you all for your support, encouragement, and for helping us spread the word of WALK OF DEATH! We couldn’t have done it without you! 

More to come on the new book in the coming weeks so stay tuned!
